Arguably, the Air France South Atalantic crash was exacerbated by pilot interaction with a partially failed system. If they had recognised the cause of the anomaly (frozen air data probes) then they could easily have manged the situation. Instead the aircraft stalled with stick back and engines at idle all the way to the sea. Was this a software failure? Discuss.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
